General Radio Discussion / Zenith H500 Restoration needed......
« on: June 09, 2020, 2059 UTC »
I was very recently browsing through an antique store and picked up a Zenith H500 Transoceanic receiver for $80.00,  It's in pretty good shape,  powers up and the MW band works fine but there is quite a bit of circuitry and cosmetic work that needs to be done.  I checked YOUTUBE and rather quickly  came to the conclusion that my best bet will be to  "let the pros handle it" when it comes to restoration.  As such, I can't think of a better place than HF UNDERGROUND to request any information/suggestions on reliable restorers offering this type of service for hire.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks.
